The company was founded in 1984 by Pat and Geraldine O'Connor. Geraldine is a qualified Montessori teacher with ten years experience. Pat having worked in the Architecture and Joinery business for 12 years began producing a small range of Montessori products and hence Lisheen Toys was born.
Lisheen Toys Today
Lisheen Toys remains a family business with Oliver Fahey joining as production manager. However, in response to growing demand, we have linked up with some of the top Montessori manufacturers from around the world in order to give our customers the widest possible range of quality, choice and value for money. All products still pass through our workshop/warehouse in Co. Kerry and all orders are inspected before shipping. Though the company itself has expanded greatly through the years, we still aim to provide the same level of customer service and personal commitment to our customers that we always have.
